Let's hope they vote to repeal this absolute farce.

Yeah we like being denied healthcare for pre existing conditions, or caps on the amount of coverage your insurance will pay,or your insurance having the option to drop you or any family member from coverage, or huge deductibles, or losing your job means losing your healthcare.. etc.

BH9, what don't you understand about what happened yesterday that you live in a fantasy? The house of reps will most likely do a symbolic vote and repeal the AHCA, but its DOA in the Senate and DOA at the white house, you will have to in Nov, hold the HoR, win the senate by a 60 vote margin, and the white house. Do you really think this is going to happen? Have you bought into the lie that Romney will even if elected has the power to just jerk out a law because he does not like it? This is the law of the land and as it goes into affect the rational Americans will see its not the boogie man the right said it was and as they find this out, it will become like Medicare where the dumbest white, over weight idiot would cut your hand off if you tried to repeal it. Look a Paul Ryan, his bill is shot down in flames every time this fool tries to bring it up.

No, you will nto be denied healthcare, you will get healthcare. Insurance for healthcare is a risk based product. I thought that Obamacare would reduce costs for all Americans? Well, it will not, it will simply force people who cannot afford to pay for healthcare to buy it or pay a tax.

Why didn't the President and his cronies listen to some of the reform ideas that the Republicans proposed? Why did the President and his cronies exempt themselves from this healthcare act?

And who knows everything that is in this bill? They certainly didn't and I can bet there will be provisions in there that give more control to the government.

How nice it must be to just live in ignorance thinking that this "tax" will help people when in fact it will kill jobs, raise taxes and place more control in the hands of government which seems to find a way to screw up everything it touches.

Sure, that's how Obama does it. Remember two weeks ago with the immigration Executive Order?

This is a good move. It shows the American people again, which elected official supports another tax hike, and which doesnt. The SC confirmed Obama lied and we are indeed getting another tax.

It makes a bit easier on who to kick out of office this year. You vote for the tax hike, and are up for re-election, its time for you to leave office.

Why doesn't Congress, the body that passed the bill, tell us how every American can apply for and receive the same healthcare plan Congress enjoys at the same cost?

After all, they're supposed to be working for us, why should our alleged servants have better benefits than the people who provide them?

Would be a great question. Lord knows, the crooks who voted for this wont have to have any part of it.

The House Republicans are too obsessed with eliminating abortion to work on anything like repealing a bill most of their voters favor.
